    MSC-PC 2018

    Hi Fellow Specials, The time has come for me to take my Police Career a step further and I have just been informed that I may start training in December, however, I have heard that the new Foundation Training for PCs now incorporates the CKP. As I joined the MSC whilst IPS was accepted instead of the CKP, how does this affect my PC Training? I cannot seem to find anything online so would appreciate if someone who has recently started PC training as an IPS Special could share their experiences with us. I think it would also be helpful for any other MSC who are planning to join Regs. Thanks

    I have been told no at the moment, they recently had an intake and I know of a few people who have been told their applications are on hold.

    Merged BOCU's

    Thanks for the prompt reply Blandy, I was considering putting Camden down as one of my choices for my PC Application but will have to reconsider I guess. The Borough I'm a Special on is merging next month so fingers crossed mate.

    Would be very interested to hear from officers on the boroughs already merged (CN, EA, SW) As most of us have no idea what's to come. Ours is coming together this September and I suspect most others will be around then. Thanks in advance guys.😎

    Experiences at Hendon

    Started my training 18th October 2015, posted to Bethnal Green on the 24 Sundays course. Half way through the course, Bethnal Green shut down as a training centre so we had to transfer to Richmond. All in all, Bethnal Green was a lovely centre with excellent trainers, wish I could say the same about Richmond but the whole of our class hated it. We joined another class who were two weeks behind so we had to do everything with them again. From the sounds of it though, the training hasn't improved in anyway and the MSC is suffering big time for numbers. (I wonder why?) Fingers crossed for the future eh.

    Black stones, it covers everything you need to know legislation wise.

    "Special friendly" boroughs?

    KF? I've had a different experience when I've come into contact with the PCs there ...

    "Special friendly" boroughs?

    Which borough is that then?

    "Special friendly" boroughs?

    And to top it off, regular officers seem to be treating specials with less respect and not appreciating the fact that we're giving up our FREE time to help out, even if it means we need to learn a few things off of them. On certain boroughs, the relationship between the MSC and Regular force is non existent. Phew, rant over!

    "Special friendly" boroughs?

    I genuinely don't think there is a single borough where specials enjoy the work they do. A lot of boroughs don't manage their specials properly and/or don't give them opportunities to experience the variety of policing. Also bearing in mind that specials are managed by other specials who either don't have enough time and energy to put into the development of their team or they generally just don't care. You just have to get in, find your own two feet and go with the flow, if your joining to get into the regs then just keep your head down and work hard. Forget all the politics behind it and just keep yourself to yourself. Good luck mate

    Whats Lambeth like to be a special in?

    Thought Waltham Forest was the best borough?!
  14. I do think it's unfair they included your street name and area in this article! Hopefully they'll remove it
